We’ve all heard the saying – Keep Calm and Carry On – but we’d like to share a few tips on how you can go from Ahhh to Aaaaa quickly and easily.
Take a deep breath in, hold and relax. How good does that feel? When we’re feeling anxious and panicked we tend to take short shallow breaths which means your body is not getting the full amount of oxygen it needs. So take a minute to breathe. It might be in the car, a walk around the block, the beginning of the day and at the end but breathe it all in and let it all go.
Get a Massage
Our Bee Relaxed and Bee Uplifted with Mango and Lemon (I feel better already!) are a couple of our top selling massage balms. When you get a massage your body is going through a process of unwinding and relaxing. Using active manuka honey and essential oil massage blends helps the mind and body release any tension and stress. This partnership of massage and natural massage balms is incredibly therapeutic and helps you deal with challenging moments because you have untwisted all those tight notes and released negative thoughts ready for the day ahead.
Get Out In Nature
Getting out in nature whether it’s just for 10 minutes or longer helps you to get grounded and focus on the here and now. A big part of mindfulness is being able to train your thoughts not to wander but to remain in the present. If you can go barefeet and just ground yourself on the sand or the earth it’s a wonderful way to stabilize any unwanted thoughts.
We are what we think and if you keep telling yourself you’re stressed or you are worrying endlessly about everything then tell yourself you are safe and you are enough. Just these few simple words of affirmation can help you love yourself and focus on self-care. Research has shown that too much stress affects the immune system and leads to sickness.
Our gorgeously scented perfumes like Rose and Vanilla and Frangipani and Orange are delightful little pick me ups you can use during the day to remind yourself how wonderful you are and to focus on being optimistic. We want to help you to encourage those immune-enhancing hormones to take care of you.
Did you know that one of the best ways to stay calm is to have a good laugh? A good giggle helps to lower blood pressure, lowers cortisol and increases the levels of immunoglobulin – A, an immunity antibody so grab yourself a massage, take a breath, get out in nature, have a good laugh and breathe in something uplifting and relaxing and you’ll be back to full health. Why not let us help you keep calm so you can carry on? Visit today on www.honeybliss.co.nz and we’ll help you feel great all over.
